    Selkirk Mountain Range

    We are a family-owned business in the beautiful area of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, crafting all of our paddles right here in the United States. Our company named after the Selkirk Mountains which can be seen right outside our facility doors. The Selkirks make up the westernmost range of the Rocky Mountains and straddle the border of Washington and Idaho extending north into British Columbia. We love living here with our families in the great Northwestern United States. We have chosen the name Selkirk as a reflection of the influences this region has had on our lives and seek to spread the same to the rest of the world.

    With that in mind, we have dedicated ourselves to crafting high-performance Pickleball Paddles in the industry. We are committed to innovation and quality in both our designs and craftsmanship. Selkirk Sport first launched in 2013 when brothers Rob and Mike Barnes, along with their dad Jim Barnes and father-in-law Russell Heistuman, put their diverse skill sets together to create high-performance Pickleball paddles.
